Pakistan Reclaims Top Spot in Men’s ODI Rankings Ahead of World Cup

Share This Post

In a significant development, Pakistan’s men’s one-day international (ODI) cricket team has surged to the pinnacle of the ODI team rankings, dethroning Australia from the coveted top spot. The shift in rankings comes at a pivotal juncture as cricketing giants gear up for the imminent 50-over World Cup scheduled for October.

Babar Azam’s formidable squad demonstrated their prowess by clinching a resounding victory over Afghanistan in the third one-dayer, securing a series sweep with a convincing 59-run win. This triumph propelled Pakistan to ascend to the apex of the ODI rankings, a feat achieved merely weeks prior to the commencement of the highly anticipated global cricketing extravaganza on October 5.

The Australian team had maintained its hold on the numero uno position since the early days of May, following a triumphant 2-1 series conquest over India in March. Despite being displaced from the top spot by Pakistan’s surge, Australia retains the opportunity to reclaim its former status in the rankings hierarchy. The upcoming five-match ODI series against South Africa presents Australia with a chance to regain their dominant position ahead of the World Cup.
